So why do we link them.

Proof of aliens might dispel some of the religions and beliefs out there but it does not really prove or disprove God or subtract anything from the "God exists" argument.

It seems like religion is an "emotional issue" but God is a "belief" for us.

Wow! I've been struggling with this important issue ever since the aliens that landed in my back yard a couple of years ago told me that there was no god. But now I see that just because the aliens said it does not make it true!

UFOs are here for a reason. In the Christian faith, it speaks of a time when Christ will remove His church from off the earth. Now if that were to happen, most people finding churches empty no doubt would believe that is what actually occured. Especially if it was on a global scale. However, back in the 1970s I recall reading stories of people who claimed to be in contact with aliens. In their accounts, they stated that when the great peace maker comes, he will bring with him his ships of light. And the world will wonder after this man, for he will be able to do great things. I discovered in their accounts, that all who would refuse to follow his teachings, his ships of light would remove from the planet. The Bible speaks of such a man, it calls him the Anti Christ. And it's obvious, he is going to try and take credit for the dissappearance of the Christian Church. And when we hear of Alien abductions today. This is planting in the minds of earths population, that such an abduction, would be possible. The Biblical God tells us, that a great day of deception will fall upon the earth in the last days. And it would occur around the time we see the Jewish people return to the land of Israel, and Jerusalem. It should come as no surprise, that around the year 1948 is when we first started getting the numerous reports of UFO activity. And it was in the year 1948, when Israel became a nation.

Thanks at least, Campbell for giving a very good reason why UFO's should not be 'in the Christian faith'. It is irrelevant to UFO's and UFO's are irrelevant to it.

It is written of the Sons of God, Who came down out of heaven as the Nephilim, who had intercourse with Human woman, to bring forth the giants/Mutations.
And God had to wipe em out.

So UFO?
Did God not Drive ADAM and EVE out of EDEN in some craft Perhaps?
For the words God drove them out of EDEN is mentioned in the Genesis principle.

And it is also to be noted that some art works done in religious overtones have in the skies odd looking wonders (flying ships of fire or other anomolies)

So UFO's are religiously tied because of the entries about some kind of entity coming out of Heaven as the sons of God, and having affairs with human women in a sexual way which is not God's way.

For God said he made mankind out of mud and dust, and star stuff.

And humans have been lead to believe that sexual intercourse is the only and true way to concieve children.
When God's Word proclaims something else!

And they claim they believe, but they do not do...
And they say they know, but they continue to sin...
And they say they see...but have no sight to see what they are doing wrong, in opposition to God's word , Laws, Precepts, and covenants.

So whether there are UFOs in our reality (and there is enough proof there are) makes no difference...God is above all principalities Powers, knowledge, and reason.
The device is not the issue here..the issue here is obediance of God.
And when and only when that is done, will God come down, or Christ will come up...Acts 3:21 has mention and Rev 17:17 is another line of pondering one can take to make it known to themselves, exactly what is , and what isn't...by testing the Bible...and walking like Christ, Doing what God said to do....and that leads one to the Garden again...in a sinless state of being...to restore something taken in disobediance of God (sin)...sinlessly.

Whether there are UFO's or not...has nothing to do with fulfilling that simple instruction God gave us a very long time ago.

Campbell that is a load of horse poop. Documented UFO sightings date
back as far as 1500BC and are rife within your own bible. Not only that but there are many depictions of them in ancient and medieval/Renaissance art!!

But I'm not sure they have made it to this planet. There's no way life hasn't sprung up on at least one other of the trillions of planets in the universe.
